Prince Harry cheers on Invictus athletes ahead of Meghan Markle arrival
The Duke of Sussex cheered on athletes competing in track and field events at the Invictus Games in Dusseldorf, hollering and clapping from the stands.
Prince Harry, 38, chatted animatedly with officials as he watched participants take part in several races.
He sat next to Gloria Orwoba, a Kenyan senator, who greeted him warmly, and Yulia Laputina, Ukraine’s Minister of Veterans Affairs.
Large throngs of spectators cheered their respective nations from the stands, many dancing along to the music that boomed over the speaker system.
Surrounded by several aides and his private protection officers, the Duke appeared in public for around 20 minutes before taking cover from the searing heat in a tent at the side of the track.
After a short break, he met several competitors in private, many pulled in from the tracks to come and chat to him and pose for photographs.
He also chatted to Kenyan and Mexican officials from an observer programme for potential new nations. Neither country is among the 21 that currently compete.
The Duke, who is due to be joined later by his wife, Meghan, will later on Monday attend the wheelchair rugby finals at the Merkur Spiel-Arena.
The Sussexes are understood to be staying at the Hyatt Regency hotel in the city and will be at the Games until they both address the closing ceremony on Saturday evening.
